“Creating a Radically New Culture™ starts with a shift in what you view as acceptable and gets carried out in the minutia of every interaction you have. Shift the culture.” ~Lisa Merlo-Booth
It’s time you step in to help create a Radically New Culture™; It’s time we all step in to build a Radically New Culture™. Building large-scale change starts with playing by different rules. Gandhi was very wise when he said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Don’t beg, plead, rage at, or wait for others to change. Others may have no interest in changing, so stop waiting for them to show up differently.
Over the past several years, our culture has accepted more and more harmful interactions. Many have normalized, cheered on, and encouraged lies, hate, aggression, and attacks on every level. As a result, marriages are ending, families are broken, schools are unsafe, hate crimes are cheered, lies are touted as truths, and even our elected officials justify killing if it supports their political views. What the hell has happened?
A RADICAL cultural change is needed, now more than ever. This change happens inch by inch, moment-by-moment. Changing the culture–in your home, office, or world– occurs in the minutia. Every conversation you have, action you take or don’t take, and behavior you accept or don’t accept help shape a culture. Creating a Radically New Culture™ starts with you abiding by these four pillars in every interaction in your life. When you honor these, you model for others how to do the same. As one person incorporates these four pillars, they give others the strength to do the same. Over time, these shifts become the new normal—they become the new “rules of the road” for the new “norm.” Your bravery leads to another’s, and another’s, and another’s until the masses have incited a powerful movement of change.
In every culture you’re in, become a powerful force for positive change. Don’t wait for others to take the reigns. Lead by example. Hold up the bar when it comes to the four pillars of a Radically New Relationship™, Radically New Team™ and ultimately, a Radically New Culture™:
- Uncompromising Safety (emotionally, psychologically, physically, sexually, spiritually)
- Absolute Equality
- Courageous Accountability
- Humane Kindness
Challenge: Refuse to accept the unacceptable. I challenge you to raise the bar when it comes to relationships—in your home, on the job, and in the world. The time is now to start creating a Radically New Culture™. You deserve great, and so does our world. #TakeTheChallenge
